Either way the way their CAA guy talks is ridiculous and TTCAA should restrict PY from operating into POS until there they have their act together.Brickell305 wrote:Per ThePointsGuy, B6 is making quite a few cuts that affect the Caribbean (and Bermuda) as some of the routes they added during the pandemic (some routes are from pre-pandemic) have not panned out:
I also wonder if the EWR cuts are terminal construction related.

I believe that the airlines are seeing normal behavior from pax as people are CARES act and other benefits are ending and flights/networks are coming back to normal operations. A lot of people last year were tired of staying home, had a lot in savings and decided to go on vacation. Add to that a lot of people were working from home so there were many flexibilities with working from a vacation spot. With many of those coming to an end the normal behavior is slowly returning. As a result a lots of the flights that were added are going to be reposition or cut to normal hubs.
It is surprising that B6 is cutting these routes like EWR-BGI/PAP, even BDA I though was going to be a good A220 route.
The notion that PBM is complaining about BW is a joke, given that it was BW which had to temporarily bail out stranded PY passengers when they lost their planes.
This is a bold faced attempt to protect PY and it isnt going to work because T&T will retaliate. PBM actually needs BW more than POS needs PY.
I could not even believe the asinine nonsense I read from that official, because BW did operate a couple of repatriation flights to PBM during the pandemic. They even helped out PY in June last year to GEO-MIA when the airline has its 73Gs repossessed. He knows in the current state that PY cannot compete with BW into/out PBM to POS and beyond. There are people saying they would prefer to fly AA MIA-POS out of PBM.
BW must complain and the TTCAA must revoke PY from operating into POS.
